Hotel Hofwirt Salzburg
Ranked #29 of 132 Hotels in Salzburg
Reviewed February 6, 2013

I will start off with the good things. The location is quite ok, just outside the pedestrian area of the city center. You can walk basically everywhere in the city from here.

Downside is that since it is on a very high traffic area the rooms are quite noisy, but I have seen worse.

Breakfast was good, with plenty of options, and the hotel was quite crowded. I would say overal it is average, with a good price for the value it offers.

I stayed in Hotel Hofwirt for 2 nights during my trip of Zurich-Prague-Vienna-Salzburg-Innsbruck in October 2012 and without doubt this was the most rewarding experience among all Hotels that I stayed in, during the holiday. To begin with, the room was very comfortable and extremely well maintained with a plush bed and a sexy bathroom! (All this at 85 euros a night, incl. VAT). The breakfast included within the room rent was abundant and had a wide range of choices to let even the most restrictive austere eater to return with a full stomach. Located conveniently on Schallmooser Hauptstrasse, the hotel is within a kilometer of Mozart's House, Mirabel Palace and the river which runs through Salzburg and within 3 kilometer from the train station. The receptionist at the hotel was friendly and very helpful and stayed the way through the many questions that I and fellow travellers asked her. To summarize, if I ever return to Salzburg, Hotel Hofwirt will be the place that I will choose to stay in.

Room Tip: Take a room which has a mountain view (a peek).

The rooms are small but sufficient! The personal is very friendly. The position of the hotel is favourable, because the Linzergasse, the Getreidegasse, the cathedral to Salzburg, the theatre ...are reached in a few minutes.

My family stayed at the Hotel Hofwirt in Salzburg the week before Christmas, to enjoy the Christmas Market and all that Salzburg affords. Check in was simple and efficient, with kind hospitality. I would find out later how thoughtful the staff was. We headed out to the market and later dinner. Sadly I took ill with the flu that night, and the person at reception kindly supplied me with large mugs of tea, honey and lemon, as well as their concern.

I can tell you that the bed is very comfortable as I had to stay in the entire next day! My family enjoyed the breakfast and were able to bring me tea and toast to the room. And more tea later in the day. Check out the following morning was swift, and more concern was shown for my health (which slightly improved). The location of the Apotheke across the street was very convenient. The hotel borders the pedestrian only zone and the walk was short to the main tourist area - an ideal location.

I hope to return to Hotel Hofwirt, and remain in good health, so I can enjoy their efficient staff and comfortable, convenient facilities.

We stayed here for 3 nights, leading up to Christmas 2012. Location at this time of year was fantastic - just a short stroll to the beginning of the pedestrianised old town so very easy to get around on foot. The English speaking receptionist was very efficient and professional, the best check-in service we have ever had! Wi-fi was free and usable from our room. Breakfast buffet was very good - everything from cold meats and cheeses, yoghurts and cereals, scrambled eggs and boil your own, a full range of breads to choose from and cake, plus a few coffee machines dotted around to give you a cappucino or espresso should you need one. the room was modern and functional although no heating control! the shower was fantastic! Everything was very clean.

Not only did we have a unexpected amazing time in Salzberg but this hotel was great too, with the amount of stars and cost I expected it to just be a standard hotel to recover after the long walks around the town.

The rooms are modern and elegant, fantastic bathrooms and heated flooring!
The breakfast was better than expected and had lots of continental options.

The only downfall was that the Internet was terrible, we could get connected to the wifi but had no internet access, which these days is a must have for hotels. We mentioned this to staff on the first day of our visit and nothing was done to resolve it.

The staff in the hotel were friendly and informative, one of them explained a trip out in meticulous detail!

Salzberg is a great city to visit especially in the snow season! Go for the Christmas market and you'll have your breath taken away.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the car park are quieter but don't have a decent view like the ones facing the road...

Not a bad stay here, but reviewing it is a bit difficult as the modern, minimalist design and furnishings sometimes work and sometimes don't: While the reception & bar look trendy, the breakfast area has a distinct back-packers' hostel feel to it.

The rooms, while very clean & comfortable, are a bit on the small side. Breakfast is a self-service buffet, with scrambled eggs, cold meats & cheese, cereals and various other standard fare.

The location is very good - on the edge of a main shopping/restaurant street that takes you to the old centre in a few minutes' walk.
